Purple Jagers
« on: March 28, 2021, 12:52:41 PM »
Well I finished my Jager.  It is much more difficult to finish plywood than the alder bases.  In retrospect I probably should have veneered them with alder first then dyed them, but all in all I am happy with the outcome.

As to the important part, how do they sound?  Granted I only have less than an hour on them and I have not played around with placement, I think they sound great!  The bass is punchy and I have no need for a sub.  The mids are smooth and everything integrates well.  I already prefer them to my old full range speakers.

Overall I am very happy with the sound and recommend the Jagers to anyone looking for a great speaker.

Those are looking great!  Staining plywood can indeed be a bit tedious.

I like the look, it really accentuates the grain pattern. Perhaps you used rain water for the deep hazy finish. OK I'll get me coat.

Nice!

May I ask what kind of beast has gnawed the corner off your rack?

Awww, good dog.

I have a cat that chews wood corners, as well as electronics cords, unfortunately. I try to put out sacrificial cords and cables for her, but she's too smart.

They Really look great! They definitely make a statement! Yes, you are correct, they are purple!
